Our 70th Anniversary
Our vision is to continue to be the preeminent provider in the fields of rehabilitation, geriatric care, education and support. So it has been since we opened our doors in 1948, thanks to the recognition by The Kiwanis Club of Sarasota of the need to open a nursing home for Sarasota's elderly in poor health and with limited incomes. They raised funds to purchase property and opened two residence halls and a dining room there. Today, the not-for-profit Pines of Sarasota resides on a 25-acre campus with 19 buildings, offering capacity for 243 residents, and over 400 employees. We are proud to be celebrating 70 years of serving our community and we are looking forward to 70 more.
PINES OF SARASOTA FOUNDATION
Love Lives Here
As we get older, life becomes less certain. What if an accident or illness makes it impossible to live without assistance? What if it's time to find a new home that will help meet changing needs? That's when our community counts on Pines of Sarasota. Now, we're hoping we can count on you. We're embarking on a multimillion-dollar project to bring much-needed renovations to our aging campus. Every dollar donated will be matched by a $2 donation from the Esther & Harold Mertz Foundation. Please give generously. Our residents count on Pines for everything they need to live with dignity and freedom from worry about their finances. With your help, we can show them love lives here, and in your heart.
